May I try fruits and vegetables in the supermarket?

Question by Guest | 2018-06-22 at 17:04

I would like to know whether it is allowed to take a bit to taste from the fruit and vegetable counter in the supermarket before buying. Sometimes it's difficult to say if the goods are still fresh and even tasting good. I would not like to experience a nasty surprise at home.

Of course, I'm not talking about slicing a whole melon or eating a whole apple. For example, I mean little things like grapes or strawberries.

The dealer really should not mind when doing so, right? Is that allowed in principle?

Even if many customers in the supermarket are doing that and are thinking that this is only a trivial thing, it is still nothing more than stealing. For the dealer, you are a theft and he can start legal proceedings against you.

However, in the fewest cases this is done, nevertheless you would make yourself punishable with the tasting.

So I would not risk it unless you asked a seller for permission. Very few dealers will say no and you are definitely on the safe side when asking.
